Method 1: Viewing Safari Downloads from the Browser

  • Access a Webpage: Start by opening the Safari browser on your iPhone and visiting a webpage from which you intend to download content.
  • Download Content: Navigate to a page or file that you wish to download. When you tap on a downloadable item, a dialog box will appear, asking if you want to download the content. Confirm the download.
  • Contextual Menu: Once the download starts, look for the contextual menu, which appears in the search bar. It’s represented by an icon that resembles two letter ‘A’s.
  • Access Downloads: Tap on the contextual menu icon, and a drop-down bar will appear with various options. Among these options, you’ll find “Downloads.” Select it to view all the files you’ve downloaded during the current browsing session.
  • Open Downloaded File: From the list of downloads, you can tap on a file to open it directly.

Method 2: Accessing Safari Downloads with the Files App

  • Open Files App: Locate the Files app on your iPhone. It’s typically found on your home screen or in the App Library.
  • Navigate to Explore: Once in the Files app, tap on “Explore” at the bottom of the screen.
  • Access Download Location: The location of your Safari downloads depends on your settings. If you’ve configured Safari to save downloads in iCloud, follow this path: Files > Explore > Locations > iCloud Drive > Downloads. If your downloads are stored locally on your iPhone, follow this route instead: Files > Explore > Locations > On My iPhone > Downloads.

By following these steps, you can easily access and manage your Safari downloads on your iPhone. Whether you prefer to view downloads directly from the browser or through the Files app, you’ll have full control over your downloaded files. Enjoy the convenience of quickly finding and accessing your downloaded content whenever you need it.

Chicago veterinarian, dog show judge charged with child porn; FBI says he boasted of drugging and abusing multiple kids

By Todd Feurer, Charlie De Mar

Updated on: March 26, 2024 / 10:15 AM CDT / CBS Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A Chicago area veterinarian who has judged national dog shows was arrested Friday on child pornography charges, and accused of chatting about planning to sexually assault his newborn son, federal prosecutors announced on Monday.

Adam Stafford King, a veterinary ophthalmologist from Elburn, is charged with one count of knowingly distributing child pornography. He is a staff ophthalmologist at MedVet Chicago, a veterinary clinic in Avondale.

King is also a Havenese dog breeder and dog show judge who frequently travels to dog shows around the country, and had been scheduled to serve as a judge for the 2024 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

According to the charges against him, the FBI began investigating King in October, as part of a child pornography investigation in New York. Agents learned a subject in the New York case had been chatting with King using the dating app Scruff and the messaging app Telegram, and King had sent that person several videos of child pornography.

After that person was arrested, FBI agents posed as him online, and continued to chat with him. During those chats, King used the handle @pervchiguy, and wrote that he prefers children under age 10. In one message, King wrote "0-9 [years old] my fav…B[oy] and g[irl], though prefer b[oy]," according to the charges.

King also allegedly sent the person in New York several videos of child pornography, including at least three different videos of men sexually assaulting preteen boys.

During their chats, King also claimed he had drugged and sexually abused his nieces and nephews.

King allegedly wrote "I generally use Benadryl," noting that it provides a "wide safety margin," and is "easy," claiming, "it generally takes 30-45 min[utes]," and "I usually double an adult dose," according to the charges.

King also allegedly claimed that he and his husband were expecting the birth of a child by a surrogate on March 29, and that he planned to sexually assault the child after it is born. He also allegedly sent the person in New York an ultrasound image of the unborn child, and a photo of a baby outfit he and his husband got for Christmas.

"I do love the idea of inviting a buddy over when I have my boy … just has to be someone I can trust obviously," King allegedly wrote in a message.

According to the charges, when the FBI executed a search warrant at King's home on March 5, they found him in the shower with his cell phone, despite announcing their presence in the home several times.

During the search of his home and a forensic search of his iPhone, the FBI also found images of child pornography, the ultrasound image he had shared, and the baby outfit he had shown off.

King was arrested on Friday, days before he was scheduled to fly to California to visit the surrogate mother ahead of his son's expected birth later this week.

King is well-known in the dog-showing community, and has also been featured on podcasts.

"Because he's so well-known, especially in the Midwest - that's why it's such a shock," said Jessica Deardorff, who also shows dogs.

Deardorff has never met King, but knows of his work as an ophthalmologist and a judge.

Deardorff said she has previously called the American Kennel Club for stronger safeguards throughout the industry – specifically for children.

"You can't keep ignoring it. This isn't the good old boys club anymore," she said. "Like, you can't sweep things under the rug."

At King's initial court appearance on Friday, prosecutors asked him to be held in custody without bond, according to court records. A detention hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday.

The American Kennel Club said late Monday that King has been stripped of all his judging privileges.  

Nobody came to the door late Monday when CBS 2 stopped by King's rural home in Elburn. CBS 2 reached out to MedVet and King's attorney, who both had no comment.
